The slowest song on the album "Costello Music" yet one of the most catchy. Brilliant vocals, really looking forward to this release and if the British public had space in their collection for a newcomer instead of listening to over-rated Arctic Monkeys etc they would definately be no.1 !!!

The Fratellis, eh. They've banged out a couple of top notch singles this year, single handedly attempting to restore the na-na-na to the charts, alongside some glam rock tub thumping and shouty choruses. This isn't one of them.
I haven't been counting but this is probably the third songle off the album as the law requires that a few singles in, you must release a dull as ditchwater ballad. Which this is. With whistling. Now whistling was banned after the great Scorpions debacle, to ensure that nothing as bad as "Wind Of Change" be allowed to despoil the charts. This isn't that bad but whistling is whistling. To be fair, they have put out some purty singles to try and sell this what with the 8" single and the pin up shaped disc, but that isn't enough to save them.
Nip home lads and listen to some more Sweet singles. Then come back when you've topped up on na-na-nas.
